Money and politics database

January 12, 2012

To understand money’s influence on politics, use the searchable database of Maplight at Search by bills, legislators, interest groups, contributions and companies. It’s interesting to note, for example, that the National Beer Wholesalers Association has contributed $7,108,000 to members of the House and Senate and has taken a position on nine bills before Congress, making it fourth behind the National Association of Realtors, AT&T and Honeywell.
